Meet Mrs. Fraud’s Son

, , , | Right | October 21, 2019

(I ring up a purchase for three teenage boys. One of the boys swipes a credit card at the card reader.)

Teenager: “Um, this is my mom’s card. Can I sign for it?”

Me: *shocked* “No.”

Teenager: “Why not? I do it all the time.”

Me: “That’s illegal.”

(They reluctantly left. A few minutes later, the boys returned with an older woman. She wordlessly ran the credit card and signed the screen herself. They did the legal thing in the end, but it’s so nice to know that a parent in my community is actively encouraging her son to commit credit card fraud!)
